Important Dates

9/8-9/9: Mesa-Buckhorn Annual golf tournament

9/29: AEMP Board Meeting

10/21: Annual kids of Steele mini golf tournament

What a month! I have had the privilege of learning the ins and outs of AEMP as well as the benevolent history of the Elks while attending various events and clinics and meeting everyone along the way. My Father has been an Elk for 36 years and my Grandfather was an Elk for even longer, so to be initiated into this order as a 3rd generation Elk is truly an honor.

Recently, I was fortunate enough to travel to Wickenburg for their annual baby shower and get my first taste of the generosity of the lodges within Arizona. It was a huge success! Thank you, Wickenburg, for all that you have done and continue to do! That same weekend, I attended the South District DD Clinic where I was able to meet district past and present officers, district deputies, and lodge Exalted Rulers, Leading Knights and Secretaries. Thank you all for taking the time to introduce yourselves to me! I have no doubt that we will have yet another successful year!

Lauren Erdelyi from the Steele Center and I were featured on the Morning Blend here in Tucson discussing the raffle, the Steele Center, and how our funds have aided in their successes. One of my goals for the upcoming year is to bring more awareness to all that we do through various media outlets. We will keep you posted on any PSA’s we do.

I hope you all have a wonderful month and I look forward to meeting you all next month!
